Less is More....punches


I can't help it.

I am addicted to SU's Pool Party card stock!

I've been trying it with alot of different color combos and really like it with black. I started out with a 6x3 card and tied some black bakers twine around it. Then I punched out a black scallop square. The so saffron flower is from SU's Floral Fusion sizzlet. I added a button with a bit more of the bakers twine in the center.

This card is perfect for the less is more challenge this week....punches and die cuts....I used both!

I'll try not to make so many cards with pool party....well, for awhile anyway.
